English style suits Paulinho
Tottenham Hotspur new boy Paulinho is confident he has the right style of game to be a success in the Premier League.
Paulinho has joined Spurs in a £17million deal from Corinthians and the Brazil international could make his debut against Crystal Palace on Sunday.
He is looking forward to playing in English football and is aware of how fast the game is played in the Premier League.
"Football is a game where you have to do a bit of everything if you want your team to have the edge," Paulinho told The Guardian.
"Matches are decided by details and you have to be ready to create spaces and help open up defences. It is what I have to do.
"It is quite interesting to see how games in England seem to change a lot in terms of action and pace. The game here is full of movement and intensity. The pace is unbelievably fast, faster than Brazil.
"But I feel this is all so right for the kind of player I am."
Several clubs were linked with a bid for Paulinho and the 25-year-old acknowledged that Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas was influential in his decision to move to White Hart Lane.
He added: "Andre Villas-Boas is very well regarded in Brazil and he was part of the reason why I joined Tottenham.
"We have been talking about how he wants me to play. It makes things easier that we speak the same language."
